Though group rate discount deadlines have passed for Hotel Nikko, rooms will still be offered at regular rates for as long as rooms are available.



Alternatively, you could try the Handlery Hotel at Union Square (across the street from the Hotel Nikko, where the conference will be held).  The SAR Group rate is $189 through Friday, April 14, 2017, but they have only some nights available at this rate (other nights during the conference may be higher than the group rate, but likely less than at Hotel Nikko):
